Doing Business with USAID
With headquarters in Washington, D.C., USAID’s strength is its field offices around the world. Valuing diversity, USAID works in close partnership with private voluntary organizations, indigenous organizations, universities, American businesses, international agencies, small and disadvantaged businesses, other governments, and other U.S. agencies selected through a competitive process. USAID has working relationships with more than 3,500 American companies and over 300 U.S.-based private voluntary organizations.
USAID also recognizes the change of resource flows in development assistance (currently 85% are private, and 15% are public) and promotes the development of private-public alliances to encourage more effective problem solving and greater leverage of resources.
While various types of instruments are utilized to implement activities, in USAID/Serbia and Montenegro these are most typically implemented through contracts, grants, and cooperative agreements with American, Serbian and Montenegrin and international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) as well as for-profit companies.
